Chanel : Spring/Summer 2009 Ready to Wear
Chanel is delighted to present the latest collection of Spring-Summer 2009 to customers and world-class brand lovers at the Royal Ballroom of The Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Here, the stage will be turned into “The Rue Cambon” in Paris. The press and guest will be amused and intrigued by discovering the white facade of the legendary CHANEL building, acquired by Mademoiselle Chanel herself in 1928, which has become overnight the stage for the presentation.
Almost 20 local and international leading models team up in the show, including Sirinya Bishop, Bee-Namthip Jongratchataviboon, Yo – Yosavadee Hatsadeevijit, Rujira Chueykeau, including the special and only one men’s ready-to-wear of this collection by the well-known singer of Thailand, “Dome Pakorn Lum” to make this collection show more special and exciting.
For this Spring and Summer, the outfits show new, tall dynamic silhouettes, long legs and short skirts, play with the many nuances of blacks, whites, delicate pinks and greys. For the models, neat hairstyles and micro jackets in the pure spirit of the House, in pink or pearl grey tweeds or adorned with geometric applications. Round shouldered short coats – worn over a dress or short skirt, play with graphic looks, or with pink, black or white, the very fetish colors of CHANEL.
Dresses elongate the silhouette. They enchant on a soft iridescent bacground of lame’ camelias. Others contrast the black and the white, form a delicate cage of shiny lattice over simple sheath, grachiously tie a bow to the neckline, under the bust or play with graphic borders and subtle embroideries. Delicate pleats ornate deaphanous blouses and a blush pink crepe de chine jumpsuit. A “gypsy” dress flaunts its tiered ruffles in a shimmering cascade and whimsically sports the latest accessory of the House, a guitar strapped in its signature leather.
On the accessories side, the bags, this season, humorously “twist” the look of the coveted House “shopping bag” into its higly sophisticated and ultra-chic leather counterpart…, simply stamped with the “cult” address and logo!
The famous guilted bag mixes “crocodile” and alligator or is whimsically carried “upside down”. pantyhose beckons for attention, barely opaque down to below the knee and sheer on the leg, they boast a flirtatious seam at the back. Platform pumps in bi-colored plexi revel in subtle transparence. Others spike the glamour note with a fringe of black or pink feathers made by Maison Michel, the gracious and airy headdresses marry tulle and feathers, elongating even further the CHANEL silhouette imagine for the upcoming spring-summer by Karl Lagerfeld.
All this proves that CHANEL is a timeless modernity which must enter into every street and every day of life.
